FDIC Bound

Off for a six day stint in Indianapolis for the FDIC Fire Service Industry trade show.  Monday will be assisting with our booth (we have two, one in Convention Center and one in Lucas Oil Stadium) and customer set-ups, Tuesday & Wednesday will be witness life-fire training, Thursday is a PMI Meeting up in Fort Wayne then dinner back in Indy, and Friday/Saturday is attending the show and spending time in our booths.  Should be interesting and educational.

Cruddy Weekend...

surviving the creeping crudAfter striving valiantly through the week to fight off the creeping crud, it hit full force Friday night (sorry Honey!).  In an effort to celebrate a few wins at work, and to try and kick the cold, I indulged in some Bourbon (thanks Mom!).

Saturday was mostly a wasted day, although I did attempt to sweat it out with 75 minutes on the elliptical.  Later in the evening, I did manage to get in a few hours of work, and we got caught up on the Bates Motel series on A&E.  Dinner consisted of leftovers of beans, rice, beef and a healthy helping of Jalapeno sauce (again an effort to beat this thing).

After watching the last hour of SNL, Dr. Beth sent me off to bed with some Mucinex and I had a much better night.  Today was a better day, had a great chat with our friends Kim and Steve from Central California, getting caught up on the latest happenings and such, and discussing a potential West Coast trip next year.

I had a friend (L&R to you Mark) inquire this week whether everything is OK here at Bucko's World.  Let me assure you that things are great, the new job is going well, I have been assimilated into the management team and I love the company and the people I work with. Working the long hours is so much more fun when you want to, versus because you have to...

In about a week I will be at a Fire Department Instruction Conference, being out of pocket for a week.  Looking forward to being at Lucas Oil Stadium and the Convention Center to see all the advances in Fire Fighting, and I will even have the chance to witness some live fire exercises.

In May we have SmashMouth and Rolling Stones concerts, July is our Vegecation in Florida, August is a Cubbies weekend, and October is New Orleans.  Spring is budding, I have an awesome wife, a great job, and Nutwood Junction is our sanctuary.  As Beth says, carry on citizens :o)
